Fire crews welcome new baby, make CPR save

By From page A2 | August 05, 2014

Davis firefighters helped welcome a new life into the world Monday, assisting with a baby’s birth at a South Davis apartment.

The healthy baby girl was already delivered by the time crews arrived at the Alegre Apartments, 1659 Drew Circle, at about 2:15 p.m., so firefighters helped cut the umbilical cord and transported mother and baby to Sutter Davis Hospital, Capt. Luis Parrilla said.

Also Monday, firefighters administered lifesaving aid to a man found unresponsive in the 5000 block of Chiles Road.

Division Chief Bruce Fry said the man, who appeared to be in his 40s, was “completely unresponsive — no pulse, no breathing” when the crew arrived on scene at about 9 p.m. Firefighters were able to restore his pulse with rescue breathing, and the man was transported to the UC Davis Medical Center for further treatment.
